As professionals assisting students with the college search process we know how critical it is for you to understand which colleges and universities best serve the individual needs of a broad range of student profiles. For professional educators working with students with learning disabilities, ADHD and other learning differences the college search process can prove frustrating for both parents and students.
Often parents have expectations and students have aspirations that may not result in an appropriate college match. As Beacon College is a College totally focused on serving students with learning differences, sometimes students are reluctant to consider a College with such a mission. Educators consistently ask us how they can better present the College as a “best college option” …We say you only need to meet our students, spend time with our faculty and staff, and most importantly review Beacon’s outstanding student outcomes to know emphatically that something very astounding is happening at Beacon College…
Beacon College, a fully accredited college, has been quietly and consistently achieving the highest graduation, retention and job placement rates for students with learning differences nationwide. These students come to us not yet ready to fully engage at a more traditional college or university. However, even after one semester at Beacon, the student’s begin a transformational journey to confidently and successfully embrace their academic studies and career goals.
Resources for Educators
In many ways, we recently have not been able to connect with educators and classrooms in person as much as we like to! However, we continue to create resources to support students who learn differently on their journey to college and beyond. Below you will find links to our repositories of upcoming events, digital resources and up-to-date program brochures. We also have extended availability to meet virtually (and in person!) nationally through expansion of regional transition counselors and representatives.
Webinars & Resources
Over the past few years, we have compiled our webinar recordings and digital resources into this one-stop repository for educators, students and families. Here you can find our most popular brochures, videos about Beacon College, upcoming events, and college readiness tools.
Check out upcoming live events such as Open Houses, information sessions, or our Virtual Learning Series focused on topics related to college readiness for students who learn differently. You will also find links here to schedule video chats, campus tours, and more!
All of our materials are available online for you to read, download or share with students. This repository contains complete flip-book brochures for Beacon Collge, our majors and academic programs, our college readiness programs, financial aid, and more.
